If you're a fan of the historical and the offbeat, then you're going to feel right at home in and around Greensboro, North Carolina. The town takes its name from Nathanael Greene, a pivotal figure in the Revolutionary War. Green led the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, which was considered a strategic turning point of the Revolutionary War, even though Greene's army lost to the British. Drive a Greensboro car rental through the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park to take the self-guided tour, which is 2.5 miles long.
The Piedmont Triad Airport (GSO), which is located approximately 12 miles from downtown Greensboro, handles all flights to Greensboro. The Piedmont Triad refers to the metropolitan area formed by Greensboro, High Point, and Winston-Salem. Furniture collectors and designers will recognize High Point as "The Furniture Capital of the World" due primarily to its semi-annual international furniture market. The market began in 1909 and expanded over the years, now featuring more than 100,000 vendors and attendees. If you want to stroll through the furniture showrooms, rental cars in Greensboro will get you to High Point in about 25 minutes. However, you may need a rental truck to get your purchase home. Drive 15 minutes farther southwest to get to Thomasville, another furniture town that gives its name to Thomasville Furniture Industries and was originally known for its many local businesses that built chairs. Visit the semi-famous "Big Chair" monument, which is more than 30 feet tall and commemorates the town's origins.
